# In each of the following Exercises 1 to 7, describe the sample space for the indicated experiment: A coin is tossed four times

**Solution:**

When a coin is tossed once, there are two possible outcomes: head (H) and tail (T). When a coin is tossed four times, the total number of possible outcomes is 2^{4} = 16

Thus, when a coin is tossed four times, the sample space is given by:

S = {HHHH , HHHT , HHTH, HHTT, HTHH, HTHT, HTTH, HTTT, THHH, THHT, THTH, THTT, TTHH, TTHT, TTTH, TTTT}

## In each of the following Exercises 1 to 7, describe the sample space for the indicated experiment: A coin is tossed four times.

**Summary:**

When a coin is tossed four times the sample space(S) = {HHHH , HHHT , HHTH, HHTT, HTHH, HTHT, HTTH, HTTT, THHH, THHT, THTH, THTT, TTHH, TTHT, TTTH, TTTT}
